versus hillary from 2008 because i think it helps explain the last four years. the case for obama was not a substantive case for changing policy. hillary was making a similar case of the better resume. the case for almost a political case for my policies never seem to change. template hillary was part of the problem, that america can afford another decade of clinton wars, political pettiness and nastiness that exploded during the clip or a list of fundamental obstacle to fundamental change. hillary's one-word explanation for persistence of the status quo was republicans. obama says washington, the endless spin cycle, insult industries and platitudes that high-tech choices and common sense to compromise impossible. as a symbol and participate, hillary was inextricably linked to the washington gridlock machine. the bickering and parsing, the eternal boomer driven vilification of the 60s. the case for hillary wishing you how to fight republican, she was comfortable in the mac. the case for obama was taken to politics beyond the mac. but upon his ideas of change in politics brought as

is getting worse, not better. under president obama we've had four straight years of trillion dollar deficits. our debt is over $16 trillion. we're selling the next generation's future. many of our democrat colleagues don't get it. through the fiscal cliff discussion the president and the democrats who control washington refused to take any meaningful steps to make washington live within its means. that is irresponsible and fails to acknowledge what every family already knows. when you have no more money in your account and your credit cards are maxed out then the spending must stop. that is the situation faces america. we must identify responsible ways to tackle washington's wasteful spending. so when the house returns with the 113th congress our resolution is clear. we're committed to making our economy stronger and healthier. we're going to fight wasteful washington spending and deliver the accountable you demand. we call on the president and democrats to join us in that fight. god bless you and god bless the united states of america. >> coming up on c-span the communicaters look at major

that philosophy of a community organizer. for years, obama said i'm still a community organizer, just at the national level. well, this was the one qualification that i think obama brought to the administration. if you can call it a qualification for being president, was that he was a community organizer. he was a darn good one. absolutely. he was known by his fellow community organizers as the master of agitation. now, this is really important because this is the essence of how he views the world. obama would go into a community and identify an enemy for that community, and he would stove their animosity, fuel it, and really generate an angst, anger, and hay -- hatred. while they are riled up hating or angry at whatever he focused their attention on, he rammed through the agenda. no discussion, no need for discourt, just all based on distract everybody, get them focused on an entity, and ram through whatever you want. well, look, that's what he's done at the national level. for the past four years, there's been no philosophical back and forth. no dynamics free and open exchange of id
